Hyundai: 'Roman Catholics Need Not Apply'

This is essentially the message the carmaker Hyundai wants to deliver to Catholics - 'don't buy our cars'. And rightly so, after Our Lord advised all Christians to refrain from giving our wealth to those who would use it to trample you under your feet when He

"Do not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to pigs. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and then turn and tear you to pieces."
Matthew 7:6

I refuse to even post the commercial, the ad is so insulting. To get an idea of how low Hyundai has drug themselves to, an article by Gregg Burke recalls the ad in detail:

The ad begins with singing in Latin, and depicts an Argentine “church” – complete with a stained-glass window of a soccer ball -- in which the wildly popular sport is clearly what’s being worshipped.

Hyundai then insults our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament . . .

by showing “worshippers” on their knees receiving slices of pizza rather than the communion host.
